    Recta Pocket watch help if poss

    Hi all,

    This may be a shot in the dark but I am hoping that somebody may help.

    I came into possession of a recta pocket watch which apparently belonged to a great great uncle of mine. He fought in WW1 and this was his pocket watch.....however I am not sure on the date and would be greatful if somebody may be able to shed some light...

    That is a GSTP (General Service Trade Pattern) from circa WW2.

    British Horological Institute - Military Watch Information

    Also thought by some to mean "General Service Time Piece" or "General Service Temporary Pattern".

    It's a toss up!

    Cheers, Bob.
